Sunyata: The Life and Sayings of a Rare-Born Mystic by Sunyata (Author), Betty Layena Camhi (Author, Editor), Elliott Isenberg (Author)


When Emmanuel Sorensen visited Ramana Maharshi in southern India, he was recognized by this sage as “one of the rare-born mystics.” It was during Emmanuel’s third visit to Ramana in 1940 that while he was just sitting quietly in meditation, he awared an effulgence especially radiated and directed upon his form.

Suddenly out of the Silence came a telepathic message from Ramana in the form of these five English words: We Are Always Aware Sunyata. Emmanuel took Ramana’s five words as recognition, initiation, mantra, and name. Thereafter, he referred to both himself and the hut in which he lived as Sunyata – which he translated as “full solid emptiness.”

I am not interested in what men can say with words – I am interested only in what they can say with their Silence. You must realize that men who talk very well, and who utter beautiful speeches, usually have a very bad Silence. What is really important is Silence, for it is a preparation for the Great Silence. Step by step as thou goeth, the Way shall open up to thee- thou art the Tao.

Alfred Julius Emmanuel Sorensen, also known as Sunyata, Shunya, or Sunyabhai, was a Danish mystic, horticulturalist and writer who lived in Europe, India and the US. Wikipedia
